If you've got a few minutes, here's something you might enjoy:

Praan, by Garry Schyman, the music from "Where the Hell is Matt?" Lyrics from Rabindranath Tagore's poem "Stream of Life":
The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers. It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth and of death, in ebb and in flow. I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life. And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.
The poem in the original Bengali is as follows:
Bhulbona ar shohojete
Shei praan e mon uthbe mete
Mrittu majhe dhaka ache
je ontohin praan

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami

Shei jhor jeno shoi anonde
Chittobinar taare
Shotto-shundu dosh digonto
Nachao je jhonkare!

Got it?

The vocalist is Palbasha Siddique and the concert master is Belinda Broughton, drums and engineering by Dan Blessinger and on guitar, Kevin Dukes.

Landscaping includes not just the lawn, but the trees, shrubs, sprinklers, furniture and other features of your Omaha yard.
You may want to include a vegetable garden in your landscaping plan.
This is particularly useful if your backyard is not fenced
